Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter.

Hey there fellow avid readers (and writers)! *waves frantically* I’m not going to bore you by babbling in my profile (well, not much anyway *wink*), but I’ll try to answer (via PM) any questions people have. All you have to do is ask.

Note. I mark ALL fics I write M-rated, just to be safe. Some may be deserving of that rating, others will not...sorry if you're disappointed.

Anyone on Pottermore? I am. I've gone through many sortings and it took me NINE of them to get myself into Hufflepuff (where I wanted to be). I have two Puff accounts (I created the second, because there was a period of time (about a month) that Pottermore wouldn't let me into my main account. I wasn't suspended or banned (like many others have been)...the site just kept telling me I was entering the wrong password (even though I wasn't).

ETA (3/19/2014):Okay, I've just created another PM account. I wanted to explore the chapters again and there's really no way to do that except to start all over. *sigh*

Anyway...Hufflepuff...yeah...this is where I want to be!

Term 1 - Slytherin won the Cup!
Term 2 -
Gryffindor won the Cup!
Term 3 -
Slytherin won the Cup!
Term 4 -
Hufflepuff won the Cup!
Term 5 - Ravenclaw won the Cup!
Term 6 - Ravenclaw won the Cup! AGAIN! Two in a row. Wow! Congratulations to out to my Eagle friends!

Term 7 (started September 26, 2014) - And here we go AGAIN! Good luck Hufflepuff! Let's shoot for a win this time!

NightQueen21779 (5/23/2012), nickname is Sleepless - currently at 31,500 points (total points are...241,525) - new term started!
NightSpirit8244 (2/15/2013), nicknamed Sybil - mostly unused - 0 current points (7,800 total points)
SpiritNight18039 (3/19/2014), no nickname yet - 0 current points (325 from collecting objects from books 1, 2, and 3...and from chapters 1-20 of book 4)

And, for my Pottermore friends only, I have a PM FB (Insomnis Queen... https://www.facebook.com/sheri.ward.501?ref=tn_tnmn).

Further, my other fanfiction profile (on this site) is under the name Sheri Contrary. Please note...I will ONLY be adding stories/authors to my favorites in my main profile (Sheri Contrary)...but I will leave reviews with this one (Spirit of the Night Owl) and probably not the other one. Just remember Sheri Contrary is ME!

Come Back, Harry by Running-On-Air-jjw reviews
"I just need to get this over with and get you out of my bloody head. After that, I can go back to ignoring you or bickering." Harry said. Malfoy turned to him with a devious smirk.

I Do or I Don't by FanofBellaandEdward reviews
That one stolen night leaves unexpected consequences behind and Harry is forced to decide whether he should confess or not. He should have never given in, but it is too late for regrets now. All he can do now is deal with it. Easier said than done, though, considering the circumstances. Implied mature content; slash; MPreg; mentioned cheating; some angst and drama

In the months following the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry is sick of the endless PR events he is forced to endure, and takes a rare opportunity to sneak out of the latest party. He doesn't realise though, he's not the only one. Drarry. Birthday present fic. No smut. Post-Hogwarts (non-epilogue complaint).

Draco Malfoy's After Midnight Maelstrom reviews
Things get a little crazy at Draco Malfoy's house at 2:00am. The kids should be fast asleep, but they're not...and the neighbors aren't very happy about it. Then in walks Officer Potter. Warnings inside. Previously a one-shot, but I've been convinced to change that. I didn't, however, change the summary or title...sorry. Title suggestions are quite welcome!

Choose Your Own Drarry reviews
I am writing this, but, as the title suggests, YOU will have to choose where you'd like to go. Sort of...I mean, I will write this with no input from you, the reader, but you will have to choose what chapters to read. In most cases it will be Drarry and it will have several endings. Let's see if this can work. Rated M for possible language and adult situations in later chapters.
